A bit further north in an icy wonderland. Still gotta go to Hokkaido before all the trains die.

Where/What is this, and how do they keep the entire line from washing into the sea?


>>2066 – If this is in the Wattensee, as I think, the area is likely more or less dry at low tide.

Will have to put it on my to-do list the next time I go. Whenever that might be.

Righty'o, let's get this gravy train rolling - light rail and streetcar thread.

>>2064 – Direction determines pole. Pole gotta trail behind you or it will jump off the wire.


File: 1477356062810.jpg (643.66 KB, 2048x1370, Trolley-in-operation.jpg)

You can back pole it is just not recommended. Also you can swing around a single pole, I do it all the time.


Front poling can work, but you have to have your wire in damn near perfect condition. Most overhead frogs will bend the pole, and you can't go very fast with it.

Hell, I front poled a car in the shop once and bent the pole. I wasn't even doing walking speed. I only went up five feet, BUT I hit a small kink in the overhead and bent that pole right in half. All of that hassle just because the last motorman butted it right up against another car when he didn't need to.


>I don't buy this de-wiring nonsense.
Come to Toronto and talk to the TTC maintenance guys about it. The bloody things ping off the wires at intersections every so often. God forbid ice accumulate on the wires or switches too.

On the topic of the Electroliner, didn't those things use skids instead of wheels?

>Furthermore, catenary requires way fewer substations due to the fact that there is a second wire in parallel with the contact wire (more current capacity for every section).
I think you're confusing the difference between poles/pantos with the difference between AC and DC powered systems.


DART opened the about 3 mile long UNT Dallas extension of the blue line today (well, yesterday at this point). Haven't been able to track down any good pictures yet. Not really much to see though, really.

I'm new here so let me get this Straight, all you guys talk about is trains?


File: 1477308590757.png (329.27 KB, 500x500, shitpostingonrail.png)


and train accessories, yes

>>2048 – And trams. And some shiplifts. Sometimes harbour cranes, but that was all too long ago.

Another Hyperloop thread.
Do you guys think the hyperloop is actually going to exist?


File: 1476724164411.jpg (39.24 KB, 625x626, 1375753080931.jpg)


Perhaps it could work, but how would it manage to break even? Seems like an inefficient use of resources, destined to eat up tax dollars until California finally sinks into the sea.


This board got me interested in trains. Thank you 1chan


Me too. Anyone into machining and making models? I can't really afford to now, but it sounds like a great occupation when I am older.



Just to ya know - xxngle, a (in)famous namefag has visited this board. ^_^

File: 1476936042454.jpg (134.58 KB, 900x675, new_hope_and_ivyland_railr….jpg)


Kind of a long shot but does anyone happen to know if New Hope & Ivyland is still running 40? Is there a way to figure out which weekends it will run on?

B&O RR Museum in Baltimore.

I'm trying to add another image from the museum, but the site keeps getting stuck on post.php, does that mean my file is too large?


File: 1476657561210.jpg (5 MB, 4000x3000, P1010154.JPG)


That's odd, when I had this problem last night, my post DIDN'T go through, but this time it did, apparently.

Might as well add one more old steam engine from the museum as long as I'm posting about my confusion


I wanna know what that loco is now!

My first train set, Christmas 1975. Dad and step-mother said No, Mom said Yes! Thanks Mom! :^)


File: 1476384790449.jpg (53.18 KB, 800x496, ARRalphie_Steve.jpg)

Strange,it is usually the other way around.


Yeah, Dad remarried in '74. That was the start of *cough* wonderful and nurturing parenting from the fat bit– I mean step-mother.

I'm a black rifle fan, love that pic! :^)

Btw, I still have the trainset. Boy when your little, a simple layout on 4x8 piece of plywood looked humongous. Tons of hours of play with a large collection of Lego and matchbox cars. Hehe!


will look for these on Oct 22nd!
